Small Apartment Suicide

Apartment building

Every weekday we bring you Live at Five in Five, a series that highlights the most noteworthy events of the day in our fair City.

Small expensive apartments are the new "it" thing in New York.  However, New Yorkers are coming to the realization that they cannot even afford a square foot of floor.

Just when you though New York apartments could not get any smaller, the city has picked a team that designed apartments measuring 250 square feet for one of the city's buildings.

A New Yorker, that upon realizing she would have to share the apartment with three other roommates in order to afford it took a dive onto the subway tracks.

Another girl could not help herself either, and she was struck by a bus as she did everything she could to avoid living in a closet.

Real estate developers having realized how much money they could make with micro-units, started burning down their buildings.

Finally, a city councilman that cannot fathom why New Yorkers are partaking in the "subway splash" is calling an emergency meeting on people trying to avoid living in closets for $4000 a month.

I don’t mind small places but 250 square feet is pushing it.
